Nexus 5X and Matte Gold Nexus 6P now on sale in the Google Store


Remember that Nexus 5X deal that I told you about last night? Well if you’d prefer buying from someone like Google or Amazon over an eBay seller, your time has arrived.

Google has discounted both the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P by $50. That means that you can snag a 16GB Nexus 5X for $299 or a 32GB model for $349. Meanwhile, the 32GB Nexus 6P is available for $449, while the 64GB model is $499. The catch with the 6P, though, is that only the Matte Gold model is on sale.

Meanwhile, Amazon is also selling the 16GB Nexus 5X for $299, and it’s got the black 32GB Nexus 5X for $349. Best Buy is matching Google’s deal on the Matte Gold Nexus 6P, cutting the 32GB model to $449.99 and the 64GB to $499.99. However, the 64GB version appears to be sold out online.

When the Nexus 5X debuted last year, it started at $379, so being able to get one just a few months later for $299 is a pretty nice deal. It may not be the most high-end Android phone around, but it’s got a spec list that ought to serve most folks well, and it’s 5.2-inch display is a good bit smaller that many other flagship Android phones on the market now. And then there’s the Nexus 6P, which combines a metal body and top-end features to make one of the best Android smartphones that you can buy today.

    Does it properly support band 12 yet?

      Yes. My 5X spends a lot of time on Band 12 where I live.

    Can someone please confirm that wifi calling works with the non TMobile branded Google phones?

    • kbiel

      Yes, Android 6.0 has Wifi calling and VoLTE baked into the cake. I have been using it since preview 3 came out and I installed it on my N6. Now I have a 5X and since the 6.0.1 update it has worked. (It actually worked out of the box on 6.0.0, but I had to ignore an update that disabled it for a while. Others had the update remove the capability until 6.0.1 was released.)

      My Nexus 5x supports WiFi calling on T-Mobile, and VoLTE over all bands, including band 12.

      Also, there are no T-Mobile branded Nexus phones.

    5x to me is cheaply made compared to the OG 5. Volume buttons alone, look at em! The bezel is bigger on the 5X then the 5. Same with the 6P. If they shrunk the top and bottom bezels the phone footprint would of been smaller. This is my biggest complaints about the phones. Im extremely picky. I’ll hold on to my OG 5 till the end of the year until the next NEXUS

      If you’re not afraid of 6″ phones than I would recommend going with a Nexus 6 for better network compatibility and support. The bezels are pretty thin as far as the 6P goes.

      • FILA

        yea the Nexus 6 is a beautiful phone. Great bezels, why did they go a step back on this years model with over a inch of total bezel on each side. 6 inches is just to big thou. Phone companies have to go back at some point to smaller phones. Don’t they realize people want smaller phones

    still waiting for 64GB 5x :(

    • Grendel

      Yes, 5X with 64GB of storage would be tempting…

  • SirStephenH

    Still waiting for EIP…

    The problem is that everyone that wanted a nexus 6p or 5X for that matter has one, so discounting them will sell a few units but won’t break any records, why did they wait so long to bring out the gold color for the 6p the should have brought it out with the other colors.

  • zx6guy

    Not overly impressed with the 5X’s speed but the finger print reader is the bees knees and 299 is not a bad deal.
